WJ.SmlthCompany & MINE SAFETY ADVANCES According to the report for the year J913 of Director Holmes of the Bureau of Mines, during the few years since the beginning ox mine-safety investigations there has been a marked inzrease in the general interests taken bv miners, mine owners and the general pub lic in questions relating to mine safety and a marked decrease in the number of fatali'ies and in juries notwithstanding the increase in the number of men employed in the mines. The bureau has en deavored to organize and lead in the movement for mine safety ami in addition to its investigations has disseminated a large amount of information on accident preven tion. In this work it has had the co-operation of state officials as well as miners and rrine owners. The activity of the bureau has re sulted ir increased effort on the part of mine laboratories and min ing engineers to improve mine practice and better equip the mines with safety devices and rescue ap pliances. For instance, at present there are several thousands sets of rescue hreathing apparatus in use besides auxiliary equipment for fire Fighting. Rescue stations have been provided at which groups of men have been instructed in the use of apparatus and in mine res cue work. This work is also con ducted by private agenci?s and by mine operators and by the Red cross; but the demands on the bur eau for such instruction have not diminished. During the three years in which mine rescue and first aid work have been taught 31,203 min ers have been trained in the use of the necessury equipment and in methods. During 1913 over -10, 000 persons (miners) visited the mine rescue safety cai* and sta tions maintained by the bureau nearly 33,000 miners attended the lectures and in re than 5,500 min ers were given rescue or first aid training. 1HE LUBE-OF THE HOME After all is ?aid and done these days when the sex drama with unci without the problem is the thing of the hour, when the authorities have to interfere in the interest of de cency to shutdown on actual plays ind the moving picture imitations which develop rastiness, i: is re* freshing to see evidence on all sides that the I ;re of the home is still the most |>< :ent lure that holds men and women and secietv togeth er. A novel just on the mirket en titled "Home," sets out ccrtain phases of this lure as the modern person sees it very effectively in the following s. ntences. "In spite of ;>1 1 our divorces ? all our national linjn washing in pub lic ? our homes ire today what they always have b.-en, the backbone of the country. The social world is in turmoil ever, where and Ameri ca is in the thrnrs no less than Eng land. Our backbone is underwit ? . ?i t .i. :i ?strain ana sum*' mum it uivan* ing, but I di n't * * * Home is the anchor of i man's stul. I want to go home." There is a c -rtain laugh in the cry of the last :entence and it is being reechoed ill over the land. The pessimists ire deploring tho decay of the A lerican home but lo! a Montessori comes over, and she with her 'resn unprejudiced eye, despite all the distractions of travel, of enf ? *ed hotel life, lias nothing hut pr isc for the high value of the A rican home. It is not bre '<ing up, and its lure o-notig 'JO, >0,0.?0 people was never more p.v.ent than now. ? Philadelphia i' I i <r Ledger KESIIATIOli STILL RULES Henry CleWi \ys: Hesitation is still the ruling spirit in business circles. This i not only true of tho United Ht ? l'8, but of nil the Kreat commercial nation*. (Jermany continues in the inidst of n rene* tionary period. Securities there are declining; rnilroad receipts are falling; imports are shrinking and industrial reaction is general. In Great Uritian there arc also *igns of commerical recession ; tho vol ume of shipping is decreasing and efforts are being made to lay up a large amount of tonnage of vessels in order to check the dceline in frieght rates, The more in p >rtnr.t ? British and German steamship lines are still paying good dividends; btit these represent past conditions, f and it is doubtful if the shipping profits of either nation in 1914 will equal those of 1913, becauji; the tendency toward contraction in their foreign traie. A FISHY FLAVOR Does anybody in Wall street hon estly believe that the United States government has driven the United States Express company out of business? The Harriman estate is also the dominating financial power in the Wells Fargo Express Cumpany. * The United States Express com pany is going info liquidation on the pretext that the new rates fixed by the interstate Commerce com mission, following the competition of the parcel post, makes it impos sible for the c< mpany to carry on its business. The Wells Fargo Express com pany, however, is still doing busi ?itss at the old stand, regardless of reduced rates, or parcel post com petition or the exactions of state authority. It happens that the Wells Fareo company has bepn a mueh more profitable con.-ern than the United Slates Express company. Its capital stock is $24,000,000 wate-d up from $8,000,000. Since 1395 it has paid as high as 10 per cent div idends exclusive of a 200 per cent stock diviJend. The United States Express com pany has capita] of ollJy $10,000, OffO. Its dividends have rarely ex ceeded (5 per cent and have been as low as a per cent even in per iods of genera! prosperity. lhe stock of the Wells Fargo company ran from 851 to 123 in 1913 while the stock of the United States Exprets company fluctuated between 38 and U(>. The Wells Pargo company con trols nearly three times as much railroad mileage as the United States Express company, and it is plain enough that if the United ' States Express company werejiq- j uidafed there would be more busi- j ness for the prosperous Well Fargo | company. Besides, one express company is enough for one estate ij control. I Why compete? In callini; attention to these facts The World has no desire to sla^h the pathetic picture that has been painted of an historic corpor- i at ion in the process of being Ihrot- | tied by a remorseless government. But, unfortunately, the reasons giv en by the officers of the United States Express company for the proposed liquidation do not square '.vith truth and common sense. If the rates prescribed by the Interstate Commerce commission are confiscatory the federal courts will suspend them. The courts have suspended unreasonable rates in hundreds of cases. But instead of appealing to the ourts, the United States Express company prefers to go out of business. Such action ia legitimate enough. The company na3 not been highly pros perous since its partnership with the United States government, in the person of Thomas C. I'latt, was dissolved. It has property and con tracts that probably exceed the value of its stock and the stock holder will gain rather than loose by the liqui lotion. But when this liquidation is twisted into an at tack upon government regulation of rates the American people should not allow themselves to be fooled. The World would protest as em phatically ns anybody against a government policy that drove the express compmies out of business. A. government pnrcel post monopoly '? ns objectionable as a private monopoly. The express companies have a right to live and their com petition is needed for the good of parcel post service. But the rea son given for United States Ex press company's liquidation have a decidedly fi6hv flavor.? New York World. ? ?
